Description Tomas Jamrisko 2012-08-02 06:45:19 EDT
Description of problem:

Killing just vdagent and not vdservice on a windows 7 guest results in cursor being unusable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure both vdservice and vdagent are running on your VM
2. Kill only vdagent, keep vdservice running 
Actual results:
Cursor is pretty much unusable (it only changes it's appearance, does not respond to clicks)

Expected results:
Service should either either start agent again or it should terminate itself (cursor falls back in that case)
